Phase II – The applicant lab experience

Shortlisted companies work with coaches from Deloitte and our financial partners to complete their Phase II submission. Based on a set of well-defined management principles, expert coaches work with applicants in a one-to-one session to understand their business, provide insights and help them benchmark against some of the strongest and most progressive private companies in the world.



Outcomes and awards
